Jasminum nudiflorum is a popular and reliable shrub, introduced from China in 1844, and widely grown as a wall shrub. It can be allowed to scramble freely over a low wall or up a bank, or trained up a vertical framework. Unlike many other jasmines, Jasminum nudiflorum does not twine, so will need tying-in if grown vertically. The stems are bright green and give an evergreen impression, even in winter when the tiny bright yellow blooms appear. It makes an excellent cut flower. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).

Grow Jasminum nudiflorum in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Regular pruning keeps bushes under control and prevents bare patches from appearing.
